Hi folks:


What do people think about deprecating the non-XSLT display on detail and
search/list results pages?


The XSLT display provides more data in a much more attractive way than the
non-XSLT templates. They're also easier to maintain (as you don't need to
modify the Perl scripts to feed data forward). We already have default XSLTs
so it would be trivial to use these as fallbacks where people haven't
specified a XSLT with the global system preferences.


Going forward, I much rather maintain one set of templates than two. I don't
know about the most recent versions, but in the past (e.g. 3.8) there were
issues with the non-XSLT displays not showing data in the right order and
not having as much data. Rather than update these displays, it seems much
more logical to deprecate them and switch everyone to using the more modern
